Jack was absolutely wonderful with out pets. We have 4 of them, one of which is a 13 year old standard poodle who suffers from emotional detachment disorder every time we leave him, even for a day. He loved Jack, and our Yorkie could not wait to see him everyday! I felt so confident and comfortable for the first time ever leaving our pets with a pet sitter. We also have 2 cats which were so much calmer when we returned than normal. We have already hired Jack for 2 more vacations and have recommended him to a friend as well. We can not thank him enough!

Carol was a fantastic cat sitter. We have two cats, one diabetic. She showed great care giving her twice a day doses. Stayed to keep them company and even cleaned up the litter box. The cats were very fond of her.

I am so glad that I found Sara. She is my new go-to dog sitter! I took my dog over to her home and she was immediately at ease, running around in the fenced back yard. Sara watched my dog for three days and did great. Sara was able to give her space separated from her other dogs, which I had requested because my dog is sometimes skittish. When I picked my dog up, she was calm and happy, which is not usually the case (usually seems freaked out when I go away). I think Sara really put her at ease. I look forward to having Sara dog sit for me again!

Donna Andrews has done an excellent job looking after our dear cat. She has a genuine love for cats, founded in long experience, and will make a point of getting to know and appreciate the individual personality of any cat she cares for. Donna prepared conscientiously for her responsibilities with our cat, was meticulous in following all care instructions in letter and spirit, communicated regularly and fully about how things were going from day to day, and left a detailed written summary. We returned to find our cat doing beautifully well, happier after being in her care than with any of 3 other previous cat-sitters. Highly recommended.

Clare Owings was just wonderful. Something that I found extremely valuable was that she listened to my situation very well so she gave me pointers and suggestions taking into consideration my lifestyle. My 9-month-old dog has learned so much just after two sessions with her. She is excellent with dogs and, maybe more importantly, with dog owners. She knew how to "handle" my dog and me pretty well. I appreciated her coming not only to my house but also to the dog park and to places where I walk with my dog. I really recommend her!

We have had numerous pet sitters over the years for all of our wonderful cats! Hands down, Hillary, whom we recently chose for the 1st time, is one of the nicest, most professional, and caring pet loving sitters you could ever hope to find, starting with our first conversation to her final visit for our very shy Sophia. We shall definitely hire her again, and you should not hesitate to trust this lovely lady with your furry "family" members too! Thanks so much, Lyn & Mike, Z... West Chester, PA

Peggy Plummer-Menapace watched our lively Irish setter for us, and they immediately became best friends. I doubt that anyone could be more conscientious or considerate regarding either your house or your pet. Thanks again, Peggy.

Liz was a great help when I needed to find a cat sitter on short notice during a holiday week. She has a lot of experience taking care of pets so she knows exactly what questions to ask. She even sent me pictures of my cat, Melanie, to put my mind at ease. I highly recommend Liz for any pet sitting needs.

I love the fact that you can see in Michele's face that she loves animals. She treats them as f they were her own and is very loving and kind to them. My little chichi cries when I go to bed without her. Michele said it would be fine with her if my little girl slept with her and would actually like it. I've had many pet sitters but she by far is the best ever and I highly recommend her. My dogs love her too and are happy and healthy when I pick them up.

Alyssa was very nice. She tried but our cat didn't do so well with a dog groomer. We need to have a cat specialist next time for our cat that got upset-even though Alyssa was very nice.

Very impressed with the service! Elizabeth was able to meet with me beforehand for an interview despite rather short notice time constraints. We arranged for her to come feed and water my pet pig at my house while I was away. She did a fantastic job, and left a very professional summary of service note for me to review upon my return. Elizabeth is top-of-the-line as far as pet care goes. During the interview she took very detailed notes including how to work with my pet's unique personality. I am very pleased with her work and professionalism, and am very happy to know that I now have a reliable pet nanny only a phone call away.

Very respectful and stellar pet-sitter! My dogs had a great time with her when I was out of town. She sent pictures of playtime and even dress-up time! It was really comforting to know that Rebecca was caring for my dogs while I was away- I never once worried about my pets or my home. She has a really big heart for dogs and is very patient and energetic with them.

Carol is an excellent pet sitter. She cares for my cat as if he was her own. She pays attention to detail in my cats moods, manners, eating habits and health. I get calls and messages if something comes up & a full report after I have returned home from my trips. My cat loves her!

Mey has taken care of our two dogs and cat at our home on several occasions, including during longer trips out of the country. We have always felt comforted knowing our pets are safe and happy in her care, and it's clear she loves them and treats them as if they were her own. Mey is professional and considerate in her communications with us and an exceedingly conscientious house guest - we feel lucky to have her in our lives!

Donna is professional, punctual, attentive and absolutely wonderful with my pups! They immediately bonded with her and she with them! She took great care of them while I went on a business trip, and administered their meds as directed. Donna also kept in communication with me, providing updates and even sent me a pic of my pups with hearts which was totally awesome! I highly recommend Donna Perona as a dog sitter! 🐶🐶

We hired Jacques and his team of pet companions for a 10 day vacation we went on and had him stay at our place.We also use them to do some regular dog daily walks. They are easy to work with and so compassionate about caring for our pets. We will only use them for all our pet care needs going forward

There were no problems, we were at a family wedding and Roberta cared for my dogs at my home. She sent daily pictures and reports on each of the dogs. I felt at ease about their care and will definitely continue to have Roberta care for my pups.

Patti has been my pet sitter for several years now. She always does an amazing job. She always sends me updates and lets me know how my animals are doing. Plus she brings in the mail and waters my gardens for me. I wouldn't trust anybody else to take care of my beloved pets.
